While the story was well written it contained hardcore bdsm that was taken too far, definitely not for the faint hearted. It didn't really have a satisfactory ending for me. I felt that Dharsha suffered so much three quarters, I would have liked to have seen more happy time for him. Also the story ended with the two main characters heading off into the unknown with even less certainty of a welcome reception.
I loved this story, there was amazing character development for both Yhalen and Bloodraven throughout the book. Yhalen went through some terrible things but it added to the story as it helped him grow into his potential that you can see he would never have realised on his own. It was also great to see Bloodraven coming into his own and allowing himself to be changed by Yhalen. Extremely well written and great length that you could really sink your teeth into.
